College is already expensive and the ever-growing price tag associated with higher education is making it increasingly difficult to afford.
Rising college costs decrease the likelihood of students of color completing their degrees without taking on high amounts of debt. While student loans can make college more accessible to low-income students, their debt can follow them for decades and can make it difficult for them to succeed in life.
This scholarship seeks to support BIPOC students so they can reduce or eliminate their college debt.
Any BIPOC student who is working full or part-time and has a disability (i.e physical, mental, cognitive, developmental) or is an adult learner or non-traditional student may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us how you’re working to address your current and/or future student debt.
